Kids reading to homeless cats. I’m not usually that much of a sap, but this one makes me go belly-up. This animal shelter in Pennsylvania helps kids practice their reading skills while soothing cats who suffer from ennui and neglect. It’s like feeding two birds out of one hand. (That’s the kinder, gentler version of “Kill two birds with one stone.” I am trying to be a kinder, gentler cat. And anyway I use my claws and teeth, not stones.)
The program is called Book Buddies and it’s a worthy Squirrel-endorsed cause. See more insufferably heart-melting pics and read more about it here, and then consider donating, or hey, starting a copycat program in your own area (pun intended).
